With 2016 upon us, you’ve probably already made your new years’ resolutions. But, if you’re like most people, let’s face it, you won’t keep your resolutions long. In our already busy, stressed lives, one more thing on the to-do list doesn’t exactly bring a smile to our faces.
But, here’s the thing, a new YOU doesn’t have to start with an exhaustive list of ‘do’s and don’ts’ this year. What if you simplified? Don’t worry, we’ve even done that for you…
The Only 3 Resolutions You’ll Ever Need:
Be YOU this year. Hamlet said it best, ‘To thine ownself be true.’ But, Hamlet isn’t the only one who knows deep down this is the only way to live your best life. If you love dancing and exercise is one of your resolutions this year, make your goal dancing 3 nights a week, not running on the treadmill.
Say NO more. If you’re anything like us, you’re saying yes to things you don’t love, & those things are eating away at your time and energy; leaving you less time for the people and things that you love most. This year, resolve to say ‘no’ to the things that don’t matter to you. While you’re at it say no to the guilt, fear, and shame you feel about doing so, too.
Say YES more. Always wanted to travel to Paris with your beau? Constantly daydreaming about a hot-air balloon ride? Desperately longing to take a cooking class? This is your year. Stop letting fear hold you back and say yes to something you KNOW you’d love. With all the extra time and space in your life you’ve made from saying ‘no’ to things that drain you, you now have the time!
